I’ve been working my ass off of effect change since the early 1990s.

With more than just a little success.

All I know about you is that you counseled me out of the blue to tolerate homophobia, and suggested that I might be wrong about my beliefs.

I’m not wrong, and I refuse to tolerate homophobia.

Absolutely refuse. Categorically.

I don’t need advice from somebody who counsels me to do so.

Nor do I need snide remarks suggesting I don’t understand tactics.

You need to back off.

I’m not interested in discourse with people who suggest that opposition to homophobia might be wrong.
